Mailbox Monday

Knitting and Sundries will be hosting Mailbox Monday in November. “Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists." Here are the 2 books I received recently in the mail last week. Click each picture to read about the book.

The first short story collection in the #1 New York Times bestselling series-including a brand-new Harry Dresden novella!

Here, together for the first time, are the shorter works of #1 New York Times bestselling author Jim Butcher-a compendium of cases that Harry and his cadre of allies managed to close in record time. The tales range from the deadly serious to the absurdly hilarious. Also included is a new, never-before-published novella that takes place after the cliff-hanger ending of the new April 2010 hardcover, Changes. This is a must-have collection for every devoted Harry Dresden fan as well as a perfect introduction for readers ready to meet Chicago's only professional wizard.

Daily Guideposts 2011: A Spirit Lifting Devotional, from the team at Guideposts, pretty much tells the reader exactly what is to be found inside the pages. A devotion has been written for every day of the calendar year from New Year's Day to its eve in December. The 2011 version is significant because this is the 35th annual edition of the devotional.

I love your mailbox picture!

I haven't read Jim Butcher yet, and I don't know why-- I think I'd enjoy his books. (OK, I do know why. Too many books, too little time)

Enjoy your reading.

My Middle bebe Girl Jasmine would LOVE the devotional, and the Butcher compendium looks great to me, as I love anthologies and short stories! Great mailbox!
